Tardy Tuesday: Monday Must Haves

Tuesday, May 26, 2015



I hope everyone had a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend, I became a fish and pretty much lived in the water. I dusted off our skis and I'm definitely paying for it today. I'm so sore!! What did you guys get into this weekend?! If you follow me on Instagram, you know I don't mess around when it comes to pool floats. This watermelon float is my best friend this summer and I may or may not have ordered this float as well! Hint, I did. I also ordered these sunnies and I am convinced they are the perfect sunglasses. I was worried about the fit on my face but I'm obsessed and all of my friends tried them on as well, also to immediately fall in love with them. They look great on every face shape, no lie! 

I missed Monday Must Haves so this week we have Tardy Tuesday, Whoopsies!! I pulled some of my favorite pieces this week, I hope you enjoy! 

Fringe Benefits

If you're like me you've been wearing white all winter and spring, now you're just excited because you finally have that summer tan to make it pop & if you don't have your summer tan yet not to worry! White always makes you appear more tan than you are. I dressed this romper earlier this week (here) with all white and one pop of pink, I wanted to show you how you could easily wear this romper Saturday afternoon at the market or Sunday morning brunch with your besties.

Summer Sales

Wednesday, May 20, 2015



I've been in a rut. I think I jinxed myself, remember last week when I wrote my tips for blogging? A few of my tips I included said never give up or compare yourself to others. Something I've been guilty of these past couple of days. I'm trying to push through it, so we will see.

On an unrelated note, I just preordered a top for my Fourth of July trip.. is it too early to be shopping for July? Probably but oh well. I LOVED this top and wanted to share it with you guys before it sells out. I'll be styling it on C&C once it comes in but if you want to check it out sooner you can do so here. How freaking cute are those tassels!? *Some people said the link didn't take them to the item, if not search 'Pretty Gingham Crop Top' and it will pop up!*
We just finished redoing our bedroom and backyard plus we just booked a NYC trip for the Fourth, so I'm trying to resist shopping *key word trying, it's obviously not working very well as indicated above* but there are SO many great sales happening right now. I may or may not be making a few more purchases insert monkey covering eyes emoji here. Check them out for yourself and hurry they'll be going fast!

Monday Must Haves: Swimsuit Edition

Monday, May 18, 2015

When I lived at home, every Spring my mom and I would look through different swimwear catalogs and pick out suits to order. We would try them all on and return the ones we didn't like. It was one of my favorite parts of getting ready for Summer! Now that I'm an "adult" I can't order all the suits I like and return the others because I would end up loving them all and never sending any back.. my mom obviously had all the self control in this process. So instead I book mark 5 million different ones I like and (slowly) narrow them down to a few. I don't mind spending a little bit more on swimwear because I wear it over and over and over again for multiple summers. I rounded up a few of my favorites below (just click to shop)! I often just purchase the tops and pair them with my favorite white or black bottoms, (here). They are my all time favorite. I have them in multiple colors and my friends even started ordering them as well because they are so flattering and they stay on in the ocean, lake, or pool. Plus they're under $20.

STYLEbar Chattanooga + My Recent Faves

Thursday, May 14, 2015


I know I'm constantly showing you new pieces and trends that I love but I think the most important things to share with you guys is my tried and true essentials that I cannot live without. For any outfit to look good, you cannot look like a hot mess. I do not obsess over an array of products but a few basics that I think every girl should not live without. 
Here's a funny story, two weeks ago I went to a hair dresser here in town. She is such a sweet girl and does my boyfriend's mom hair and it always looks great so I wasn't worried about going to her salon. Plus, I was only getting a root touch up.. no biggie right? Wrong. I don't know what happened I think it was a reaction from my hair but it turned orange. I had to visit her twice more to try and fix it without any results. I was so upset, my hair was damaged, still orange, and I had wasted so much time and money. That's when I was referred to STYLEbar Chattanooga. 

My Tips for Blogging

Wednesday, May 13, 2015


One of my most frequently asked questions is "How do I start blogging?' or 'What tips do you have for beginner bloggers?'. I completely understand why. When I first started blogging I literally had no clue what I was doing, I didn't even follow any fashion blogs religiously. I remember one of my best friends saying 'What are you talking about? Are you just going to write about yourself everyday??' I wasn't mad at her at all, I really didn't even know the answer. What was I going to post about? Did I really have to take pictures of myself? [I wanted to style my friends and photograph them, not me! I am still camera shy believe it or not] I spent a couple of days Googling what to do and then I decided to wing it. 

Before you read my tips please remember, I am not saying this is the only way to do things or that it works for everyone. This is what works for me and I hope this helps you out! If you have any specific questions please feel free to email me rileybrahm@icloud.com

Monday Must Haves

Monday, May 11, 2015

Remember last post when I said my life was so crazy busy this week and I was on the verge of insanity? Well it got even crazier. Wednesday night, I found out my Step Mama was in labor and our little bundle of love was arriving almost two weeks early!! I live 5 hours away from them so I immediately rushed to Memphis and made it just in time for her delivery. Tatum Lillie joined the Brahm family and she is already soooo gorgeous. She is 5 pounds & 3 oz of perfection! I can't wait to watch her grow. 
On a different note, I am starting a new blog series 'Monday Must Haves'. One of my biggest pains of online shopping is the struggle of scrolling through multiple sites looking for my favorite pieces. Each Monday I'm going to share some of my favorite pieces from multiple stores! If you're ever looking for a certain occasion [think wedding, birthdays, trips, etc] feel free to comment or shoot me an email and I can keep my eye out for you! 


Instagram Catch Up

Wednesday, May 6, 2015

Hola! I've been MIA for two reasons.. 1. My computer charger died. There was a fizzle, some pops and some tears (that part came from me not the charger, whoops). 2. I have three different holidays going on this week (Babe's Bday, Cinco de Mayo and Mother's Day!), I'm wrapping up two personal styling projects, plus I had family in town last week & family in town this week. I am not complaining at all. I couldn't be happier about all the amazing things happening in life right now but I wanted to apologize, I try to get at least three posts up a week! 
Anyway,  I have been able to Instagram and I try to link everything with LiketoKnow.it but if you don't use their service *it's free and amazing, head to their site and check it out, they explain it a whole lot better than I do! or if you're not on Instagram I like to link everything for easy shopping!
